Contributing author to such prestigious newspapers as The Times, the Independent or El País and has published thirteen books about photography and design.
It was in 2002, after a trip to Ghana, when she decided to take a significant turn in her life, volunteering at an orphanage in the country. She was so moved by the experience of living with the orphans that decided to help in a more sustained and substantial way, leaving her glamorous lifestyle, and moving permanently to Africa where she founded the NGO Orphanage Africa (today OrphanAid Africa).
In its early years, OA developed programs under the name Orphanage Africa for the purpose of assisting children's homes to be healthier and happier places for growing children, avoiding, if possible, the institutionalization of orphans and abandoned children.
